New Optical Mouse - Like Xai I think?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
My Mionix Castor is going back (bad scrollwheel). I'm gonna get my money back and get a new mouse. Castor was a great mouse, sensor was flawless, but I did not like the scroll wheel placement, never got used to it.

You know any Xai shaped mices, that are not too flashy? But feel free to reommend other shapes.
I'm not a palmgripper, more like Claw/FT hybrid. With medium/large hands. 19.5cm top to base.

I was thinking Zowie, but I don't like the new red logo (and the forced LED on EC series), so sadly that's out of the question.

Maybe the Deathadder Chroma? But it might be on the large side and I remember Synapse being pretty bad (is Synapse needed when mouse is configured or does the mouse remember the settings when software is not running?) I'm not sure how good Deathadder is for my gripstyle. Looks like it's best for palm.

Quality scroll wheel is important to me! Logitech G303 got the best scroll wheel I've ever tried, but sadly the shape is off for me. I don't want a noisy scroll wheel!

Hello Sir, did you bother to check few threads below yours ? wink.gif Check e.g Dream Machines DM1 PRO S or Nixeus REVEL. Both will be available with the end of this month.
Also Gigabyte XM300 may be interesting, however finding a flawless model may be a lottery.

Yeah I was reading a few threads, still is smile.gif

Nixeus Revel looks quite good, scrollwheel not so much maybe? Can't tell. Not sure about build quality on this brand.

I've read that DM1 Pro has issues with LOD, not sure if its fixed and same issue is on the S?

Both are 85 grams tho.. Prefer ~100 grams, but maybe I can get used to it

G402.
Avoid XM300 the wheel is one of it's endless issues.
Zowie if you like the shape, I don't know why you play by looking at your mouse, design should affect your choices.
Rival 100.

Tried several already;
G402 thumb button ruins it for me.
Zowie EC2-A, LED is so brigt it lights up the room in the evening. It bothers me alot. I could cut the wire, and say bye to warranty, but I'm not sure I want to do that on a brand new mouse...
Rival 100 feels too flimsy, size and grip is fine tho.

I believe they're both Newmen OEM mice. I have the GX1 Pro and the build quality is excellent, and scroll wheel feels good.
